The Dr. we are consulting wants to change the suger pill for insulin. He explained to us that sugar pill only works for so long. I am starting him on insuline, my question is? Would the insuline help him with his kidney condition, should I be worried about his kidneys- Right now he has swollen feet and ankles, and cramps on his legs and a rash in his back. Concerned wife.
